My nails are kind of soft and weak and break easily. If I got some kind of fake nails, would it make them worse?

I don't know if it would make it worse. Are you talking about getting acrylic nails? That would be a good alternative to your natural nails but then you'll have to have them filled every 2 weeks if you're willing to do that.

Have your nails always been weak? Do you apply a nail strengenther or even do them  every week? Water can be very damaging to nails so make sure you are using gloves when you wash dishes or cleaning house.
